WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING ABOUT AACS

James Sharpe

“As a Founding Member, I am very proud of what we accomplished in the early days. There were many sleepless nights as we grappled with how to get the land and how to pay for construction. All the issues were worked out, and the results is this beautiful building you see here today. I invite you to become a member today”

James Sharpe
Jim Lee

“As original lifetime members, Elva and I were involved from the very beginning. Jim was a member of the “Construction Cabinet” that supervised the overall construction from permitting to final occupancy. Elva was a member of the group that wrote the charter and bylaws and got the approval from the State. We highly recommend AACS as a place to enrich your heritage”

Jim & Elva Lee

“As chairperson of the membership committee, I encourage all to become members to help perpetuate African American cultural experience. Among the reasons to join are: AACS educates and interprets our history, AACS promotes and celebrates the accomplishments of African Americans, AACS provides exciting, trips, social events, lectures, and many other activities.”

Jean Tanner

Dee and I have used the African American Cultural Society facilities for a few years now to conduct our meetings and other events. The building is beautiful and the administered staff is great to work with. We highly recommend it for your next event.

Mike & Dee Cocchiola

“I recently moved to Florida from California. As an outgoing people person, I was looking for an organization that offers social activities as well as cultural enrichment activities. AACS more than meets both requirements.  I am glad I became a member.”

Geri Wright

“We all wanted a place to call our own. Originally, the idea was to create a social club. But some of us wanted something more along the lines of a cultural club. The African American Cultural Society was born after considerable discussion. The result of the early discussion is what you see now; a place to celebrate our heritage.”
